Other Minds Festival 15: Panel Discussion 3


Published March 6, 2010


The third night of the 15th Other Minds Festival of New Music (OM 15) began with a panel discussion with the composers whose works were to be featured in that night’s concert, which was held on March 6, 2010. Joining moderator Charles Amirkhanian on stage were, Gyan Riley, who is known for his guitar playing as well as composing, minimalist composer Tom Johnson, and violinist, composer, and indy rock personality Carla Kihlstedt. Johnson describes his fascination with minimal music, which for him means works with a limited number of notes, a single main idea, and often a mathematically based progression. Unlike the elegant simplicity of Johnson, Kihlstedt describes her composing style as “messy,” typically starting with a wide variety of ideas that are examined, aligned, and developed in a manner that she describes as “organic.” Riley discuses his recent forays into the realm of composition and the advantages of working with musicians who are as comfortable performing contemporary classical music as playing in an avant-garde rock group. All three of the panelists also comment on their experience of participating in the pre-concert retreat at the Djerassi Resident Artists Program.
